Yes, and the reason it works (i.e., gets transported through routers) is that the protocol underlying QUIC is IP, one of the things the OP *also* wanted to replace.
Ah ah ah! Good luck with that. Consider that despite lots of investment, a quarter of a century after being standardized IPv6 only carries maybe 30 to 50% of the Internet traffic. Wholesale replacement may happen if some radical new technology comes along, maybe quantum networking if it turns out to be practical. But failing that, the best that can happen is a series of small updates.
